Or you can do what astro photographer Szabolcs Nagy did, and use some nifty telescopes and imaging gear to capture an amazing order of ISS passing in front of the moon.
ISS is an object of fascination for Nagy, who runs the Space Station Guys website to share his photograph, track station news and help others see the ISS.
The month's transit movie hardly happened, but it shot London sky cleared just in time on February 10th.
Nagy uses the astronomical calculator CalSky to watch timing for ISS events such as the moon's transit.
"Calsky can tell me where I should just place myself to be exactly on the midline, where the ISS appears right in the middle of the object," he says. He also uses the ISS Transit Prediction Android app to help track the station's path.
A close-up of the transit video looks almost surreal. Nagy says this is one of his best ISS transit photos ever.
Nagy's images and videos have attracted the attention of science generators who do not believe in satellites, including ISS, actually exist. They come up in his Twitter comments with mention of aand computer generated image accusations.
"My favorite is when they demand proof of the existence of the International Space Station (or International Fake Station as they call it) and when I show them some of my work, they simply answer" false & # 39 " ;, "CGI" or "holograms", says astrophotographer.
Nagy wants skeptical people to simply look through a camera or telescope and verify ISS & # 39; existence on their own He gives passers-by the opportunity when he's out in public with his telescope.
"Discovering the night sky is a wonderful thing and changing people's view of the universe," he says.
For all the nitty-gritty details on how Nagy caught the ISS, checking his record covering the moon's transit forecast and how he had to tear his telescopic platform to work properly for the big moment.
